I read on another thread

that if you don't know which end the screwdriver is, you shouldn't be buying a MH....well, I know that much but not a lot more so please be patient with me.....and if you are wondering where my husband is in all of this.....he is not real interested in adding the MH to our stable anyway.

We have BF Goodrich tires on SteSpot.....and I think Keyair recommended them as well....BF Goodrich Commercial T/A All-Season.....anyone put these on? Thanks for the advice. Yes, I am aware that they try to sell you what they have.....the place I am going is not exactly as tire place so he can order whatever we ask for....I just want to do the research before buying....thanks, paula

Mike,
So glad to hear your view on Goodyears...mine came with 8 new ones. After I saw what the PO had paid for them, I hope we get 80K out of ours. I wiped them down with Formula 303 and they look much better. Hope it keeps them from drying out as fast, alond with the covers.

I know which end of a screwdriver can hurt me the worst, but I'm still happy with my 345...
We put Michelin on ours...not gonna say they're better or worse...I'm comfortable with my choice.
So, WHERE is Ol' Gert???

The seller put a new set of "Gold Coin" tires on our 310 last year before we bought it. Having never heard of the brand, I was a little skeptical. They have taken us from Denver to San Diego to San Francisco to Montana to San Antonio with no problems, and still look new.

1982 24' Airstream Motorhome

She is now in Los Angeles. We are so excited. She is near LAX so if you have a layover at LAX, let us know and you can have a tour.

I have tried to post pictures 3 times and my computer keeps freezing. Maybe my pics are too big. So I will post this and try to post pics later. Paula

Congrats Paula!

It's just like my '82 28 foot just with the kitchen and bedroom merged together!

Good sounds like you solved the vin number issue. Yes, the other number stamped on a much smaller metal plate is the vin. Curious, the number you have in your pic...was Airstream able to ID the MH with this number? (I have both as well)

Look for my "Dad's Toy" thread for pics and all that I have done to my MH so far!
